Continue his pivot towards watercolor paintings inspired by his time growing up near the sea in Nantes, France, Jean Jullien will be presenting a new show tonight with summertime beach vibes at Chandran Gallery in San Francisco. Entitled Le Jardin Bleu, the new body of work will include new paintings, drawings, sculptures, and an installation from the London-based artist.
Jullien further explains – “I am focusing on minimal storytelling. Hopefully the works give a sense of calm I feel when I’m painting. I’m happiest in summer. Days are slow, with walks to the beach, long lunches in the garden, drawing in the sun, good wine…”
